Heyo heyo, I like both Slack & Discord(except for the lack of scroll bar for the servers on the left), but I've really come to like Telegram a little more. I haven't tried Mattermost.

Thanks so much for weighing in here Jeff!

That lack of left-hand scroll bar is goofy, haha. I hadn't even noticed that one.

What I've found particularly annoying about Discord is that you can't choose a separate picture per server, i.e. you just have one picture/avatar that is used across all servers. I know a lotta folks (including myself) that game on Discord and so their pics match up with their gaming name... BUT, that gaming avatar feels out of place for Discord servers that are used for something more professional.

You can change your profile pic and nick name per server on Discord. I think this may be a new thing.

Discord does take getting use to, but I find it's a trend. More and more people are moving over, and once they get use to it there is no going back to Slack 'n' what not.

The audio features are pretty cool in Discord and roles can be used to create private spaces quite easily. Generally, there are lots of options and updates are feed in frequently.
